Review of SP&S 700 Homecoming Excursion Video DVD

If you were able to see only one preserved 4-8-4 in your lifetime, No. 700 is the classic you'd want to see. If you were only to own one 4-8-4 video, this is the one!

Here's America's classic 4-8-4 design roaring once again over the classic route - the tunnel-laden, rock-faced trackage of the former Spokane, Portland & Seattle main line along the scenic Columbia River. Using five camera crews, Goodheart Productions captures every aspect of No. 700's epic excursion run over "home rails" in April 2001. Here's the thundering variety of river-overlook, trackside, pacing, helicopter views and exclusive cab-ride scenes you've come to expect from Goodheart Productions.
